I have a QGIS project with various layers for which I have assigned icons. When I import additional data layers and then merge these layers with the existing layers (and their symbology) a new layer is created but without the symbology.

How do I merge an imported layer, without symbology, with an existing layer that does have symbology, and get a merged layer with the original symbology?

    Either save the desired symbology as a .qml-file, or copy it to the new layer. Could this suit your needs? – Erik Aug 5 at 14:36
  • To copy symbology from one layer to another, right click on the layer name > styles > copy/paste style. – csk Aug 5 at 14:38
